Java (like Flash) was always designed as a plug-in, running side by side with the browser, not an integrated part of the browser. T
Just because Sun developed a Java plug-in doesn't mean that Sun's vision was ever that Java was primarily supposed to be used that way. Java has always meant to be used as a standalone programming language, and the percentage of Java development targeted at the plugin is absolutely tiny. Most of it is focused on back-end applications, websites, and the occasional desktop app.
I'm not sure where this "Java = applets" thing comes from, and it's especially hard to understand why software developers would think this given it's pretty hard to work in this industry for more than a few years without being given a Tomcat/etc application hosted in a JBoss environment to fix up.
OK, so you get in a train that drops you off in the middle of London. Now, how do you get to where you're going from there?
The answer is not "MOAH CARS!" The answer is better city planning.
It does not matter what your Software Engineer does at any particular time. Software Engineer is a professional job exempt from overtime rules for a reason: the thing that matters is whether he produces an appropriate amount of quality work.
Do you have any idea whether his work gets done? It doesn't read like you do. That's the question you should ask as you decide whether to keep or fire him.
If you want this IRS exempt employee to work for you by the hour rather than by the task or by the mission, you have that option. It's called "consultant" and you'll pay twice as much or more -per hour-.
It should be positively encouraged. I also believe offices should be furnished with beds, so we can take a nap when we want. And we should all have an additional computer with an up to date graphics card and 4K monitor that we can install Steam on.
This seems reasonable to me. What say you, fellow programmers?
As long as there's a market for right wing nonsense, there'll always be something like Fox News. If it really does crash and burn, expect Brietbart TV or Stormfront Vision to take its place.
All of them, and make no mistake Hillary would have been just as bad.
No, I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have been. I think it's reasonable to assume she would have continued the same kind of policies as Obama. And it was Obama's FCC that started to take Network Neutrality seriously to begin with.
There is no justification for claiming a "Both sides" position here, just as there isn't with 90% of what Trump is doing.
I am pretty sure that "we don't want shopping malls to fall on our heads" count as a strong government and public interest.
Yes, I agree, but we're not talking about people misrepresenting their qualifications designing buildings, we're talking about people saying they're qualified to discuss timings for amber lights.
Restricting phrases like "I am an engineer" in the context of someone making final technical decisions concerning building design arguably makes sense, but it's no longer "narrow conditions" when you restrict such a vague, ambiguous, phrase under all circumstances.
I say arguably because if the conversation is something like:
Isaac: I say old bean, you're putting the wrong tensile cable on that suspension bridge of yours. Here, use this rope, should be strong enough
Isambard: Who the fuck are you? What is this crap?
Isaac: You can trust me. I'm an engineer!
Isambard: Oh OK. Hold a moment. There. Oh fuck, the bridge collapsed! I thought you said you're an engineer!
Isaac: I am. An IEEE certified software engineer! I know PHP! Whoopwhoop!
There doesn't need to be any unfairness here, FWIW. Well, OK, maybe if you want everyone to be part of the exact same MMORPG, but if that's not an issue (simple arena matches), why not have servers... all across the world? Including Hawaii? Each player just connects to the lowest latency server available to them to play with others connected to that server?
Doesn't that pretty much fix the problem?
Let's see the same story, as published by the Squiggleslash Gazette:
Today Jimmy Wales, known for eating children, announced a new web site whose job will be collecting articles critical of the Trump administration, identifying journalists who are critics of the regime, so that Wales can go to their homes and murder them one by one.
There. That should satisfy for wish for multiple viewpoints. Questions for you:
1. Is it remotely accurate?
2. Is it more true than the summary or the article linked to?
3. Is the truth "somewhere in the middle": the original article says nothing about Wales murdering anyone, so is just a little bit of a child murderer, and is he maybe going to go to Journalists homes and just slightly murder them?
4. Is the viewpoint of the Squiggleslash Gazette worth even a split second of your time?
5. When you read the version of the story, as reported by the Squiggleslash Gazette, were you more informed, or did it make you dumber?
Compare two articles reporting on global warming. One quotes scientists, and accurately reports that the consensus within the scientific community is that smoking causes lung cancer The other fails to report that consensus, and includes only interviews with two denialists, both of whom superficially have qualifications related to health (maybe a practicing family doctor, and the director of a think tank's healthcare policy division) but neither of whom reflect the views of the majority of scientists studying in the area, and who have been found, repeatedly, to lie or misrepresent evidence. The second article presents the views of the denialists as either mainstream within medical science, or normal within science as if there's a legitimate dispute.
Is the truth "somewhere in the middle" for those two articles? Does it help you reach an informed decision to include exposure to information known to be false, without being told it's false? Are you helped if you're essentially lied to?
